360º Building, rising on top of the ridge separating the districts of Alto de Pinheiros and Alto da Lapa – a geographic location that offers privileged sights of the surrounding area and the city -, features 62 elevated homes with yards: real yards, not balconies, designed as genuine living spaces, wide, airy and bright. It will present 7 types of apartments – either 130, 170, 250 or 415 m2 – combined in sets of 2, 3 or 4 units per floor, in 6 different arrangements.
Leaving the street and past the reception, a suspended walkway leads to the building’s lobby, surrounded on all sides by a reflective pool. Down one floor, on the ground level, entertaining areas and other facilities – gym, lounge, party room and laundry – will be located, as also the janitor’s living quarters. Further down, are 3 parking levels, and, on the lowermost level, employees quarters, storage and engine rooms, in addition to a sauna and an outdoor swimming pool. The land, a steep downwards slope, allows the lower levels to be semi-subterranean, always keeping 2 sides open to the light and to ventilation.
The building projects to all sides showing no distinction between main and secondary façades.
